2 out of 3 Americans say they would take a pay cut to work remotely full time

A recent survey suggests two in three Americans would accept a pay cut to continue working remotely, full-time, post-pandemic.

65 percent of respondents would accept a 5 percent pay cut, one in seven would accept a 25 percent cut, and 45 percent would give up workers’ benefits. Breeze, an insurance company conducted its survey on 1,000 American workers currently employed or seeking employment. When asked if they would give up Amazon, Netflix, or social media for a year in exchange for remote work, 50 percent said yes.

Over one-third of respondents even suggested they would give up their right to vote in order to work remotely. According to the report, “Surprisingly, Gen Xers were often the most likely generation to take pay cuts, part ways with some of the best job benefits, or get rid of PTO in exchange for the ability to work remotely full-time.”

Since March of 2020, many offices have remained fully or partially closed, forcing employees to work from home. The system has gained popularity and presents companies to save money on office expenses.
